To be fair, it’s really not much of a secret. Microsoft itself already alluded in its May event that it will be bringing LTE connectivity to the new Surface Pro. This is a rather big thing in this day and age when even Windows tablets are expected to be able to connect to the Internet on their own. That said, Microsoft left out the finer details, like when those models will be available and for how much.Thanks to UK retailer Misco, we know have a clear picture. That is, presuming this is legit and that these are the only two models available. Both of the models run on a 7th gen Intel Core i5 processor. No Core i7 or m3 models in sight, but also no ARM. That pretty much puts the Windows 10 on ARM speculation to rest. At least for this Surface Pro model.There are two variants available, differing only in memory and, therefore, price. One has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage for 944 GBP ($1,280). The ideal configuration, however, is probably the one with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD drive for 1,169 GBP ($1,580). Those are pretty much on par with how much an LTE model will cost on top of the already high price tag of regular Surface Pro models.That still leaves the question of what Microsoft has planned for its October Surface event in London. It’ll hardly be worth having a complete keynote just to announce a device that everyone already knows about. There is some speculation, or perhaps wishful thinking, that there will be a Surface Book 2 in the lineup, though the existence of the Surface Laptop also tempers that expectation.VIA: Neowin Sometimes, people are just too eager to get the ball rolling, especially on a good thing. Sometimes that leads to accidentally published specs, but, this time, some UK retailers have taken the excitement even further. One of them have actually put up pre-order pages for models of the new not-5 Surface Pro 2-in-1s with built-in cellular connectivity, complete with specs. All before Microsoft actually announces them, officially, in a special Surface event next month.

Francesca Grum was addressing a key meeting at UN Headquarters in New York, convened in response to the UN’s Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, the first-ever global migration pact, which was adopted by more than 160 governments in December 2018. The agreement aims to ensure that the overall benefits of migration are optimized, whilst addressing risks and challenges, for individuals and communities in countries of origin, transit and destination.The First Objective of the Compact calls for the collection and utilization of “accurate and disaggregated data as a basis for evidence-based policies”; commits signatory countries to strengthen the “global evidence base on international migration” under the guidance of the UN; and calls for a “comprehensive strategy for improving migration data at local, national, regional and global levels.”Ms. Grum told the meeting that countries frequently ask UN Statistics for more information and requests on how to improve migration data – including information relating to the root causes and drivers of migration – and its impact on migrants’ origin, transit and destination countries. Better data is needed in order to bring about sustainable social and economic development, and national migrant data strategies are needed to inform good policies.However, she went on to say that there are “several critical challenges” to be addressed before an effective global migration data programme can be developed. These include a lack of coordination amongst data providers, and insufficient capacity to produce, analyse and communicate data. Addressing these problems would involve guidance on the use of new technologies, sampling, and how to communicate data to the public and policymakers.Ideally, said Ms. Grum, a global data migration programme would see improved capacity for data analysis; training assistance on data infrastructure; country, regional and international-level coordination; and the sharing of case studies and best practice examples. The senior statistician emphasised that the private sector, policy-makers and experts, must all be involved in the process, and that all UN guidance must be in line with each country’s national strategy for the development of statistics.
